|Drawing While Falling - B Ruskin|
Early 2009 EP by Mental Health Consumer (B. Ruskin), recorded over Thanksgiving 2008. This electro-IDM collection features five slightly unnerving tracks, from the analog bloops of "Four Oh Four" to the sinister dissonance-as-harmony of "Moody", and crunchy guitars and beats of "Chimera". With âDrawing While Fallingâ, Mental Health Consumer evokes an immediancy and late-autumn unrest that will hopefully inspire the listener.

|Mental Health Consumer What Have We Learned 2006-2012 - Mental Health Consumer; Brian Ruskin|
This is a chronological compilation of tracks by Mental Health Consumer, spanning 7 years and 12 albums. The progression of style is evident, but because these songs are drawn from many albums with unique themes, there's a lot of variety along with the hallmarks of MHC's sound: skittering beats, layers of guitar and samples, retro basslines amid soft atmospheric pads. From the most urgent dance tracks to ambient soundscapes to epic electronic trips down memory lane, "What Have We Learned?" answe...
